UPDATE: Tomorrow's matchday tribute

Please arrive early to pay tribute to Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II

16 September 2022

Accrington Stanley and Cheltenham Town supporters are encouraged to arrive early ahead of tomorrow afternoon's Sky Bet League One fixture to pay tribute to Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II with a minute's silence and singing of the National Anthem.

Players and match officials will wear black armbands as a mark of respect, and the big screen will display a tribute to Her Majesty prior to kick-off, with the PA announcer then reading the following statement:

Everybody connected to Accrington Stanley was truly saddened to learn of the passing of Her Majesty, The Queen Elizabeth II, at the age of 96.

Over a 70-year reign, Her Majesty served the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth with distinction.

The thoughts of everybody at Accrington Stanley are with the Royal Family at this sad time.

Today we pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth II and ask you to join us in observing a minute's silence in her memory, which will start on the referee's whistle.

Upon the end of the silence, we then invite you to join in with the National Anthem.

The National Anthem, God Save The King, will then be performed live by Caroline Hosty.

We kindly ask that you are either in your seat or on the terraces no later than 2.50pm, and please be respectfully conscious of the minute's silence wherever you are in the stadium.
